Not only are these handsomely rugged earbuds easy on the eye, but with solid build quality and great sound, at this price they’re an absolute steal. In gunmetal black or white, Edifier’s buds make background noise a thing of the past, boasting crystal clear phone calls, not to mention excellent controls and the latest in Bluetooth 5.3 technology. With a compact charge case that provides 8.5 hours of playtime (17 hours via the case), these really are the gift that keeps giving.
A classy pen never fails to make a great Christmas gift. And this desirable little number from Hello Day is indeed a classy pen. This Hexagon Brass rollerball from their aptly titled Debonaire Collection is a pleasure to write with and wouldn’t look out of place on the desk of the Oval Office. Coming in a vintage black or brown real Italian leather sleeve, this is one pen that perfectly strikes the balance of style and substance.
Ethical Bedding Just James Candle – from £19
Light up a loved one’s life this Christmas by gifting them one of these lovely luxury soy wax candles from Ethical Bedding. Using a 100% natural blend of essential oils they come in two signature scents, the uplifting Natural Cologne and our personal choice ‘Just James’, that combines lavender, rosemary and eucalyptus to aid relaxation. We can’t also help but mention Ethical Bedding’s sublime organic bedding range manufactured from 100% sustainably grown eucalyptus that boasts the same properties as silk.
Super Sparrow Ultra-Light Water Bottle – from $18.99
This funky number from Super Sparrow comes in a multitude of desirable colours, but it isn’t just a stylish piece of kit, it’s also fabulously functional. This bottle keeps water ice cold for 24 hours or hot beverages piping hot for 12. It’s constructed with the finest 18/10 food grade stainless steel and is 100% BPA/BPS free. But perhaps best of all is how light it is, with 25% of its weight having been reduced without affecting the robustness of this super thermo flask.
Winter weather plays havoc with our skin, so what better gift this Christmas than this herbal scented face wash from Athletia. Infused with Moroccan clay and plant-derived scrubs the product captures pore-clogging impurities and gently removes dead skin cells. The foamy wash, with its notes of herbs, juniper berry and celery seed, gently exfoliates the skin, leaving visages as soft as Santa’s fur slippers.
Kleen 100% Natural Soap – £9.50
Give the gift of cleanliness this year with this all-natural soap-on-a-rope from Kleen. Their handmade eco-friendly vegan soaps come in a range of four, from spicy, stimulating coffee, ginger and orange to nourishing rosemary and grapefruit for sensitive skin. Designed to reduce plastic waste, the soap comes in a neat cotton travel bag ready for gifting.
&SONS Pewter Hip Flask – £95
This hand-crafted pewter hip flask from &SONS is a thing of timeless beauty. The brand is all about creating goods of serious quality for the modern-day pioneer, although this flask would be in demand in any era. Cast by The English Pewter Co. in Sheffield and wrapped using their vintage leather, hand-stitched in the ColsenKeane workshop, there’s no denying the quality and craftsmanship gone into making this elegant object.
Back in the day socks used to be considered a slightly naff gift, but things have definitely changed in that department, especially with luxury socks as good as these. Aside from being supremely comfortable and super cool, these socks save species. Yes, buying a pair of these beauties contributes to funding vital conservation work and ensuring critically endangered animals have a home. Look great and save the planet all at the same time.
Lab Tonica Fend Gift Set – from £22
Like us, Lab Tonica are firm believers in the power of plants. And that’s why they’ve fused ancient and modern techniques to come up with products packed with goodness. Their Fend gift set is designed to help bolster defences with a nourishing herbal tea and a balm and diffuser oil to help open the airways and support the immune system. Perfect for fending off the dreaded Xmas lurgy.
Davidstow Ingot Trio – £20
Top tier cheese is a Christmas gift we’re always glad to receive. And having been making the stuff since 1951 in the Cornish village they take their name from, Davidstow know a thing or two about great cheddar. Their Ingot Trio gift set combines each of Davidstow’s aged, waxed cheddars, from the intense 20 month matured ‘Crackler’ to their 60 month special reserve. There’s a reason why Michelin Star chefs prize the stuff. Because it’s darn tasty!
There’s something about the luxuriousness of Lindt chocolate that conjures up Christmas magic. We’re loving their cheeky limited edition Teddy dressed in festive attire and we’re sure any recipient will too. Lindt are also doing their bit for charity this year with £1 going to the NSPCC for every Teddy purchased.
We can’t help but fawn (sorry) over this handy deer cork screw from Kikkerland. Crafted from beechwood and stainless steel this nifty little number is a fun gift for the chief drink imbiber of the household. In fact whoever gets this one in their stocking on Christmas morning will love you deer-ly (sorry again).
Bower Collective have made it their mission to create lovely sustainable goods for us to use in our houses, case in point their beautiful Liscio shaving brush. Made from high-grade resin and finished in pristine white and chrome metal, this vegan friendly brush looks the business and most importantly does a stellar job when it comes to applying froth to the face.
The Gillette Labs Exfoliating Razor – £22.49
After that face fuzz has been lathered up a good razor is in order. Although we might even call this exfoliating razor from Gillette great, given the closeness of the shave it delivers. The exfoliating tech built into the cartridge means any dirt or debris is removed from the visage before the blade gets to work, giving users as accurate a shave as you can get outside of a Turkish barbershop. A true cut above.
